Store Locator Plugin Guide

Restrict Searches to Specific Countries

Agile Store Locator displays all the user’s stores on the map. However, if a user has stores in multiple countries and they wish to restrict the search to a specific country (or countries), this is also possible with Agile Store Locator.

The option to limit searches to one or more countries is available on Agile Store Locator. Furthermore, If a user wants to limit store searches to a specific country(s), please follow the below steps:

  1. Go to “ASL Setting” from the main dashboard
  2. Scroll down to the “Restrict Search” field 
  3. Type in the country codes you want to add search restrictions to (eg. US, UK, AU, etc.)
Restrict Country Field
Restrict Country Field

4. Finally, press the “Save Settings” button

Once finished, you will have successfully restricted the store search to specific countries.

How to Override the Restrictions for Multiple Store Locators?

To ensure that a set of restricted values (countries) don't interfere with other store locator pages, users can override the values with the shortcode attribute country_restrict shown below: 

[ASL_STORELOCATOR country_restrict="au"] 

How to Apply the State Restriction?

If your store is located in a city that shares the same name with another city in a different state, like Portland in both Maine and Oregon, it's crucial to ensure that customers searching for your store find the correct location. To address this issue, you can implement a shortcode attribute in your geocoding requests. This attribute will enable you to send the state name along with the city name when users search for your store's location. By doing so, the geocoding service can accurately distinguish between the two cities and present the relevant results to users, ensuring they find your store in the correct state without any confusion.
